Galatians 3:9 (NLT) So all who put their faith in Christ share the same blessing Abraham received because of his faith.

Yesterday, we discovered everyone who’s made Jesus Christ as Lord, shares the same blessing as Abraham. Some of the blessing includes a great name, offspring, and wealth (Gen 12:2-3; Gen 13:2).

The next thought some may have says, “I’ve believed in Jesus as Lord, but I haven’t experienced half of the blessing. Where is it?”

There are a few reasons why some of us aren’t experiencing the blessing. The first reason is doubt. Genesis 15:6 says, Abraham believed God. If we doubt God’s Word, we can’t expect to receive anything from Him (James 1:6-7).
Another is condemnation. If we feel unworthy to receive God’s blessing because of our recent behavior, we’ll lack confidence to approach God (1 John 3:20-22). We must know God has forgiven us and boldly approach Him with our petitions.
The last reason we’ll mention is identity. Through Christ, we are children of God, we are righteous, loved, forgiven and have all authority on this earth. If we don’t know our identity, we’ll look at ourselves as insignificant and be willing to receive anything life throws our way.

Know who you in are in Christ and believe God’s Word and receive the promises of the blessing.
